No Brits Allowed
I spent the 4th of July without any British people. By the 5th they were back, but at least I had one day of freedom.
Starters were plentiful, including a delicious anitpasto plate overflowing with vegetables and meat (and a delicious jalapeno or two).Artichokes,a salad with toasted almonds, strawberries and cheese,and corn on the cob (of course).
Salmon two ways:
one with smoky wood chips and cumin,
the other with rosemary and lemon.
Meat two ways: sliced tri-tip,
and requisite hot dogs.
More Americana in the form of mac and cheese,
apple pie (with blackberries),
and a healthy bite of fruit for dessert.
Unphotographed items included homemade cream soda, chips, salsa, and double stuffed Oreo cookies. It was a gourmet meal that required several trips to and from the pool.
